“One of Our Favorites”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

Service is always excellent and the menu is diversified and meals are always good. We visit regularly for ourselves or when we have visitors in town. As already mentioned in other reviews, the views are fantastic, especially during sunset.

“Great view and very good menu selection and good food.”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

Great view of the yacht basin at this casual outdoor restaurant. Has a better, more diverse menu than the other casual restaurants at the yacht basin and better food. Good seafood, pizza and other Italian. You can grab a quick bite or a full meal.

“Surprisingly great food”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

Don't let the outside fool you, this waterfront, laid back little place is big on flavors. When I walked in with my group of friends to grab lunch and watch a little basketball, I figured it would routine fare in a cool and somewhat funky little pub-grub place. It had been recommended by friend that lives in the area.

When you go you will have to try the homemade Reuben. It is off the charts. They make their own corned beef, sauerkraut and spread. The corned beef was done to perfection, seasoned exactly as it should be and sliced to be tender and tasty. The sauerkraut was not overpowering and they used just the right amount in order to enhance the beef rather than overpowering it. All-in-all it was the best Reuben I've EVER had and that includes Carnegie's Deli in NY City and Jason's.

Their large hand stretched and tossed NJ style pizza was out of bounds. The crust was slightly crunchy to the bite with just the right amount of chew. The sauce was robust but not too heavy handed. They used the freshest toppings and the Italian sausage and ham were flavored beautifully.

The service was excellent and the overall experience was outstanding. If you're anywhere in the Brunswick county area, put this on your list, at least for lunch.

“Good food, great views!”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

I have eaten at YBE several times over the last few months. Both the menu selection, and the quality of the food has been quite good. I am especially a fan of their grilled fish…and the pizzas look amazing! I really love that I can sit inside, by the windows, and look out as the sun is setting in the marina area…it is so lovely. I have also eaten outside at the tables that line the wooden walkway.
